Location Info

Chief has an unusual role in being a roaming ambassador for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service which has bases in Newcastle, Lismore and Tamworth and a strong following in Port Macquarie and Wauchope. When Chief is not travelling around the country, the sculpture will spend some time at Westpac branch in Port Macquarie at 35 - 39 Horton Street, Port Macquarie (Ph: 6588 - 8222) or at the Hello Koalas Tree House & Shop at Unit 16, 10 Bellbowrie Street, Port Macquarie (Ph: 0416 641 482) When Chief is resident in Horton Street, after you swing by to say hello to Chief, head for a delicious meal and glass of wine or cup of coffee at Chop 'n Chill - sit outside under an umbrella admiring the large fig tree that dominates the Town Green and riverscape or sit in the cool inside and sample one of their special cocktails at the bar. Live music is often an added pleasure to this very relaxing experience. See www.chopandchill.com.au for more details.
